Now that I am retired having been many years a magistrate with a long awareness of the declining freedoms enjoyed by the ordinary citizen and a corresponding fear of the big brother state`s ever increasing encroachment on civil liberties I hope that my personal observations within these general parameters will be of interest to those with an open mind. Having been blogging with this title for many years against the rules of the Ministry of Justice my new found freedom should allow me to be less inhibited in these observations.

Any regular attender at any magistrates` court over the last decade would have been able to testify to the sheer absurdity of time wasted because of the declining efficiency of the CPS.  After all an employer can`t reduce its workforce by 10%, employ lower qualified lower grade employees to substitute in addition to agency locums and not expect to face substantial difficulties.  Most people including parliamentarians are rarely interested in the justice process so it was interesting to see the DPP criticised by an M.P.  She certainly won`t go down in history to be described as outstanding as arguably were one or two of her predecessors.
